K-pop singer IU will star in four short films, teaming up with acclaimed Korean filmmakers.

Mystic Entertainment will produce the movies, each with a different theme and concept and with IU in the lead.

“It is a fresh attempt and challenge,” says a Mystic Entertainment spokesman. “It will be interesting to see how four filmmakers make distinctions with one protagonist.”
